More. Making of.
I think the plastic Lego/Devo hair is my favorite part, though.
This one reminds me of these.
I am concerned about the women dancing around a phallic structure in this one.
Looks more like old-school Playmobil hair, to me.
It's modeled *exactly* to playmobil hair, which is awesome.
There's even a Playmobil dude in some of the "making of" pictures.
If you look at the making of link, there's a playmobil figure sitting next to the design renderings. So, yes.
Good to know my youth wasn't entirely misspent ;-)
It's like Klaus Nomi Drag Queen Spectacular.
I instantly thought of Nomi as well...
Klaus Nomi + Chicks On Speed, who used to do the paper dress thing in concert (saw them open for Le Tigre some time ago).
So I wasn't the only one thinking that was a dude?
and don't play with fire, either.
They did a similar thing in paper couture earlier, in the 60's, but nothing this elaborate or pretty because it wasn't so durable. Mostly, I remember seeing a newsreel where they were showing that you could adjust your skirt length by tearing it.
Always interesting to see what historical fashion elements show up in high-tech high-fashion. Wheel farthingales, panniers, leg-o-mutton sleeves, faux-corsetry and ruffs. Interesting.
Do you ever get the feeling sometimes that fashion designers are frustrated transhumanists or something?
They seem so obsessed with designing clothes which are at odds with human biology.
Your search - "cargo-cult transhumanism" - did not match any documents.
I will use this idea in the future, and if I do so on paper I will credit it to you.
